People Have Been Sharing Unbelievable Designs They’ve Seen And Here Are 50 Of The Funniest

When it comes to design, there’s the good, the bad and the ugly. While there are lots of good designs that are quite impressive, we also can’t deny the bad and ugly side of design development. And if great designs deserve compliments, crappy designs are also worthy of attention to. Just admit it, you love poking fun at other people’s mistakes. And it’s more hilarious when people who are supposed to make things look good and more convenient end up failing big time.

People hire designers because they’re confident that these professionals will surely come up with a great design. Whether it’s for a building, product concept, advertisement, packaging, signage and even newspaper layout, the role of a designer is indeed indispensable. It’s a given that designers know their thing. So, it’s really surprising to see crap designs that can either make you laugh, cringe or both. All the more, these epic fails make us wonder whether these so-called designers just committed some honest mistakes or they’re intentionally goofing up to earn some laughs.
